1 - He traveled to Pakistan in 1981, when American passport holders were not permitted entry to the country

2 - Civil Rights Lawyer Percy Sutton was recruited to raise funds for Obama's Harvard Tuition by Islamist Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, assistant to one of the Saudi Arabian Princes. Percy was also asked to write a letter of recommendation.

3 - Obama's Marxist Cousin in Kenya , Raila Odinga, of the Orange Democratic Movement, was in an alliance with Kenya's Muslim Community and that Odinga pledged to assist in implementing Sharia law in parts of Kenya. Odinga lost his election for President to the incumbant. His party launched horrific violence across Kenya. Odinga was appointed to Prime Minister to reward his thuggery. Odinga did not keep his promise with the Muslims. They're upset.

4 - In his first election in 1996 and in his US Senate election in 2004, Obama had his main primary and general election opponents thrown off the ballot by various means. Alan Keyes was an emergency last place Candidate for the Republicans in 2004

5 - Michelle Robinson (Michelle's maidan name) worked at the same Law Firm alongside Bernadine Dohrn (wife of William Ayers) in the 1980s

6 - Obama was a member of an authentic Socialist political party in Chicago

7 - Obama gave Hillary Clinton the Middle Finger in a speech

8 - Obama gave John McCain the Middle Finger in a speech

9 - Obama does not celebrate Christmas with his family
www.politico.com...

10 - Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen, and is an illegitimate President.

He *IS* a Citizen at Birth of the United Status by virtue of the XIV Amendment.

Natural Born Citizen is a precise legal term which means that one is born of no other allegiances than the native country. Citizenship is usually transmitted by blood from the Father (if born in wedlock, if no Father , than from the Mother)

Obama's father was a UKian/Kenyian (it doesn't matter the specific country), thus he was born a dual citizen, and could not be a Natural Born Citizen.

What so bad about Communism and Socialism? It seems like Europe has it better of then America. Quit thinking of Socialism and Communism is an evil, it's very narrow minded to think like that. Who cares if his cousin is a Marxist, another person doesn't automatcally make the other something else. I am in no way defending Obama, but these stupid insults and stuff like this need to stop.

I am confused. I thought this was going to be a top ten unusual facts list. Like, he screams at cooked broccoli or something.

So, there's the rub. The rest is inconsequential till you hit this part which shows this is just another birther post by a minion of Orly Taint. I dislike Obama, and think he shouldn't be president, but for different reasons. Birthers just piss me off. There is no current definition of 'natural born' other than what Orly Taint spouts, some opinion pieces cherry picked from as far back as the late 1790's and early 1800's, and her background is as full of questions as Obamas. In their haste to get rid of the negro in the White House, they are willing to throw the children of our military members, and diplomatic staff under the bus along with him. They wish to bend definitions to their will, and when it comes to a definition that is so important, I can see them as nothing more than traitors to the Constitution of the United States. These people need to be opposed at every turn. Not to defend Obama, but to defend the future of the United States.

I dont care what stupid label you choose to call Obama's illegitmacy.

I do know that you can't find a definition of Natural Born Citizen that includes Obama.

That's the stark truth. And like so much other truth people hate, I'm sure it will bring out the worst from so many Obamabots.

It's fascinating how brittle Obama supporters are.. how emotional they get when you mention the fact that he should be military detention and not the White House with his beast wife.

See here's the thing ...

Indoctrinated party simpletons, from both tired ideologies, extrapolate from their own predisposition to be good little soldiers thinking that everyone shares their feeble mindedness and will some how be inclined to do likewise.

This is ATS ... how they believe they can come over here, spout their talking points and think that we're going to go "hey, that's really something, consider me convinced" is really rather funny in a very sad and pathetic way.


Now if it had been 11 things, then ... then you would have had something.


Soldier on I guess ...

You show a total lack of reading comprehension, but I really didn't expect more from a follower of Orly. You people just wish to re-write the Constitution to fit your own skewed outlook. It's just fine the way it is so keep your greasy mitts off of it.

I honestly wonde what you meant by "he should be [in] military detention and not the White House with his beast wife." What do you mean by "beast wife?" Just so we're all clear on that little tidbit.

And why exactly, should The president be in military detention?
WTF?
Are you in favor of a military dictatorship?
And, while we are at it, I read your self righteous posts all the time and I'm curious, just who the hell do you think you are that you, and your fringe minority should be able to overthrow a duly elected President of The united States? I DESPISED Bush, but I'm not insane. I NEVER wanted him killed or deposed in a military coup! Jeeez man!


OOOPS!! THIS POST IS DIRECTED AT OUR ANGRY AND FRIGHTENED FRIEND VINCE! SOOOORRRRRYYY!

You must be out of your mind! Like others have said, people come here to flee those systems. If you want it so badly, move over there. Otherwise, you better be ready to back up your "open mind" with a will to fight for it, because you'll have to. There is no open mindedness to have on the subject of socialism or communism.

Not a single country in Europe is currently Communist/Socialist. Most countries are a good mix of Social Democrat and Conservative. The countries that used to be Communist (Eastern Europe) are very glad Communist squalor is over with.

To the OP: Most of your data has been Debunked long ago. Get on with Life.

We never tried to flee those systems, Brittian was just a really stupid monarchy that had to much taxes and had to many rules. What I want you to do, without going to any other website, is to look up the definition, is to tell me the definition of Communism, and Socialism, and also, describe Marxism, to the best of your ability.

I never said I was for or against Communism or Socialism, I was just trying to get the OP to think about his opinions on it, and stop always thinking it's a bad thing. There has to be open mindedness on any subject, not just the ones you want to pick and choose.

Your entitled to your opinion, but be realistic when you say these things if your an American citizen, rise up in heavy support of Communism or Socialism in due time your going to find yourself on the tip of someones pitch fork.

Capitalism far outstrips either system, if the FACT that corruption and theft having robbed the American people (like has happened to every country on Earth regardless of the system) is used to oust Capitalism in time the streets will run red as people realize what they lost...

Anyone who took the time to rear their Communist head in the debacle will have essentially signed their own death sentence in this country.

Not saying by me or making any threat... or even making this a personal attack... I'm not that type.

But I am saying,

When the inevitable in this country comes to pass...

I wont be going outside to help anyone is was foolish enough to support Communism or Socialism either...

And come on, you know how most Americans will inevitable react to the loss of their freedoms, don't be foolish.

And I see from this post your sane...

But you can't expect Americans to be open minded...

I wont be open minded in regards to either ism, most of us hate ANY ism

There is one thing that will make the American people happy, in the end

A Return to STRONG states Rights, local rule of social norms and behaviors.

There is No system, not even the one we have now that changes that we are a diverse country and there is no single way or set of rules that can please everyone.

Capitalism is the only economic system that can work in a nation of so many cultures, it's the only one that can let you employ yourself truely and does not have to raise the demon of paying taxes to support social programs that you might for religious or philosophical reasons have a reason or thinking that makes supporting certain behaviors impossible to internally reconcile...

Socialism and Communism might actually work in a Nation where people hold the same ideals the same religion and values

In the United States both even minor insubstantial movements in the direction of have half the country talking about revolution daily.

What we call Socialism here is a trend... a philosophy of integration and unity that is... in the end nothing more than a media movement and a somewhat popular youth expression.

It has no actual teeth, not compared to the cultural norms of religion in families and local behaviors that have persisted hundreds of years... as it further challenges the will of the people throughout most of the country, it's going to ignite a fire and a bad one... The people who support Socialism have no actual passion and the people against it are willing to die.

We can call those people, close minded or any names we want... think of them what we will...

But in the end I know which side will win, I know which side has real fervor and passion and conviction and is willing to fight to the death and it's not Barack Obama and a legion of Mtv watching couch potatoes... who actually care very little about changing anything...

The results of some actions are just obvious...

I personally would even say that a system more like Star Trek is in order and needed...an advancement of Govt to something NEW

But it won't be Communism or Socialism not in this Nation... and it wont come without what's in place being torn down for trying to force it's will...

I mean nothing personal again by comments

I just would never stand up to the real back bone of America, having lived in both environments it's obvious who will win a fight...

Like you said They "SHOULD be Open Minded"

But then we face the REAL, they aren't going to be and I honestly don't like where what's being offered leads, picking a side is easy for me.

Don't trick yourself into thinking the United States is a capitalist country. How many of these communist planks are valid in the United States?

1. Abolition of Private Property.
2. Heavy Progressive Income Tax.
3. Abolition of Rights of Inheritance.
4. Confiscation of Property Rights.
5. Central Bank.
6. Government Ownership of Communication and Transportation.
7. Government Ownership of Factories and Agriculture.
8. Government Control of Labor.
9. Corporate Farms and Regional Planning.
10. Government Control of Education.

2, 5, and 10 are concrete realities.

Grey areas....
1. You must pay taxes on private property (land, structures), if you do not pay those taxes the property is taken away.
3. Give em time, and they will finally pass a law either taking inheritance away completely, or taxing it into oblivion.
4. see the comment on 1
6. The FCC, FAA, various Rail commissions heavily regulate communication and transportation. Through those regulations they control it completely.
7. if you listen hard enough you can hear that coming.
8. OSHA, governemnt links with union bosses, etc...
9. see 7.

It's already here, they are just solidifying their hold.

What I showed was a disinterest in reading your comment in any detail once you demonstrated that you did not read the evidence that I provided and instead chose to associate me with a person you don't like that I never associated myself with.

Who are you to tell me who I am associated with?

I provided a link to that which I regard as valid.
